That's...WOW! I'm almost speechless! That's a fantastic story Dan. I can only imagine how you must've felt. I'm giddy as a school girl just catching the story second hand! I am very happy for you. The decals look great BTW.

Congratulations indeed! It was my first time seeing this thread as well. VERY impressive. That is a wonderful restoration.
I had never heard of a bush hog garden tractor until I followed some of your restoration threads. What I really find fascinating is the bush hog it pulls. I had always thought one of those would be great.
Thanks for this post and do get that card framed.

Now that those of you who've just seen this thread, you can see what inspired me to go all out on my own D4-10 restoration. I don't have the deep pockets of a major corporation, so mine won't reach the heights their restore did, but I'm doing as best as I can. They say you can't take it with you when you go....but I might take my D4-10 with me! LOL

If I'm remembering right, they started production in 1962. Lets see if I can name them all, the T-63, V3-6, V4-6, V4-7, D4-7, D4-10, D4-12, HD-12, HW-12, JBI, & JBII. And yes, I'm sure it's my "once-in-a-lifetime" experience. Happy to share it.

Hadn't seen that Brian! One thing on the models it mentions, as in the VE4-7....never seen one marked that way, with the "E". My V4-6 has no letter designation other than the "V" for variable.
